Germany have announced their 26-man squad for the upcoming Euro 2020.
The summer tournament will be Joachim Low’s last campaign with Die Mannschaft, with Hansi Flick already announced to replace him in September.
After a two-year gap both Thomas Muller and Mats Hummels have been called up to the national team and will be looking to winning the Euros this summer.

Germany’s squad is arguably one of the bests in Europe, and now with Champions League winners, Kai Havertz, Timo Werner and Antonio Rudiger, and as well as Bundesliga champions Manuel Neuer, Muller, Leon Goretzka, Niklas Sule, Leroy Sane, Joshua Kimmich, Serge Gnabry and many more, they are expected to deliver the best performances.
So ahead of the Euros let’s see how Germany could line up.
Neuer will surely be the first choice keeper, with Emre Can, Antonio Rudiger, Niklas Sule and Lukas Klostermann forming the defence.
Ilkay Gundogan, Joshua Kimmich and Toni Kroos will team up in the midfield, while Sane, Gnabry and Havertz will complete the attack.
In this case there would be change in the left wing back, with Robin Gosens replacing Can and in the right centre – Matthias Ginter replacing Sule. Kroos and Kimmich will team up with Sane, Muller and Gnabry in the midfield, while Werner will be in front of the attack.
Another formation that Joachim Low has used and can use again to rotate his team. Rudiger, Sule and Ginter will form the defence, with Marcel Halstenberg, Kroos, Gundogan and Klostermann teaming up in the midfield. Sane, Werner and Gnabry will complete the attack.
Germany are in the strongest and the hardest group in this Euro – Group F, alongside Portugal, France and Hungary. Their first game is scheduled to take place on Tuesday, June 15, against France at the Fußball Arena München, Germany.
